Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Basic Awareness Workshop: Whole Day

Event Code OT 20/1626
Event Description This whole day workshop is for WSCC and local authority staff and partners agencies to increase awareness about Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking.

Modern Slavery is a priority for the West Sussex Safer Communities Partnership as one of the areas of high risk due to the severe and long-term impact that it has upon the vulnerable. It includes the exploitation of men, women and children. To tackle this issue effectively, a multi-agency response is required.

Under the Modern Slavery Act 2015, local authorities have a duty to notify the Home Office of any individual encountered in England and Wales who they believe is a suspected victim of slavery or human trafficking.

Modern Slavery is also a type of abuse within the Care Act 2014 that provides the statutory footing for adult safeguarding responses.

The whole day event will provide delegates an opportunity to examine the issues surrounding Modern Slavery in detail, using case studies to stimulate discussion and gain a deeper understanding of the causes, the identifying features, and the safeguarding protocols associated with this form of exploitation. A whole day allows a detailed investigation of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking in the context of “Prevent, Pursue, Protect and Prepare”.
